I’m one years old

I eat all my breakfast

I choose what I wear

I take myself to the childminders

Caroline and I visited Brick Lane, in East London. We weren’t there on market day, so looking forward to a revisit. We loved the graffiti and the vibe of the place. It’s a bit like Camden Town, but more grungy. It’s not as vibrant, but friendly (despite the grunginess of the area!)

We’ve travelled to Hiroshima and spent the day exploring the sites. It’s a much smaller city than Osaka and Tokyo, but very lovely. Despite being small, it has a castle and temple and even a local speciality cuisine – Okonomi Yaki.

Osaka

August 30th, 2010

This is a long update since we’ve not posted in a while!

We’ve spent the last three days in Osaka. We’re still recovering from the climb. Matt’s leg is sore :(

Osaka is quite different to Tokyo, at least what we’ve seen. It seems more touristy and commercial, with lots of restaurants and different kinds of food, and entertainment. We’re staying in Shinsekai, which is particularly lively.

Mt Fuji is conquered, and so are we!

August 27th, 2010

We did it! We made it all the way to the top of Mount Fuji, just in time for the sunrise. It was much harder than we expected, but totally worth it. Not that we plan to do it again!
